Wood-Pawcatuck Watershed Association plans on hosting an

American Canoe Association (ACA) certification class here in RI. This is for paddle guides who wish to renew their safety and improve their leadership skills. The course will be led by a professional ACA certified trainer and instructor. The setting is in beautiful Hopkinton, RI just five minutes off Route 95, exit three. Boats included. This is a three day course.

The regular cost is * $450 per person.

 

 

Course details: May 5/17/19

 

ACA River Kayak Trip Leader Training  Level 1 & 2

 

This course is intended to provide the skills and training necessary for an adult leader possessing basic paddling skills to lead day trips for participants with beginner level paddling skills in calm water environments. The emphasis of this course is trip leading, safety education and rescue on water, but not specific to paddling instruction. The content is ideal for clubs, camps, scouts and other entities providing guided kayaking trips.

 

Whether or not the course will be taught depends on the amount of registrants. Four to nine participants is the goal. We will need to know by early February in order to schedule the class.
